Quantum theory is the most successful of all physical theories: it has a towering mathematical structure, a vast range of accurate predictions, and technological applicationS Its interpretation, however, is as unsettled now as in the heroic days of Einstein and Bohr. This book focuses on quantum nonlocality, the curious quantum correlations between spatially separated systemS Quantum nonlocality was one subject of the debates between Einstein, Bohr and others such as SchrÃ¶dinger. The topic was revived in the 1960s as a result of Bell's epochmaking theorems; since then it has been a very active research field, both theoretically and experimentally. This book contains twenty new papers by eminent researchers, who report recent developments in both the physics of the subject and its philosophy. The physics topics covered include quantum information, the unsharp (positiveoperator) approach to observables, the statespace approach, and the pilotwave theory. The philosophy papers include precise studies of Bohr's reply to the original EinsteinPodolskyRosen nonlocality paradox, and of nonlocality's relation to causation, probability and modality.
